Diversity Analysis

This story, on a Minneapolis gay couple being included in Easter ceremonies at the White House, deals with a cultural diversity issue of gay people becoming accepted into society. This was the first year that gay families have been included in the "Easter Egg Roll" on the South Lawn of the White House. The story does move beyond sterotypes, and explains the family just as it would any other (how they came together, why they are excited). The story explains that the Bush administration inadvertently invited the first gay and lesbian couples to the Egg Roll, something I did not know, through quotes from the two gay fathers. I was also unaware that gay couples had been excluded from the ceremony in the past, which is shown through quotes and general observations.
